Fruit Tree Patch

Fruit tree patches are a type of Farming patch which require 1 sapling to plant starting at level 15. There are 7 fruit tree patches: at Gnome Stronghold, east of Catherby, west of Tree Gnome Village, Brimhaven, Lletya, Herblore Habitat and in the Meilyr clan district of Prifddinas. As with tree, calquat tree, and elder tree seeds, before a fruit tree seed can be planted it must be used on a plant pot filled with soil to create a seedling. The seedling then needs to be watered. After a few minutes, the seedling will turn into a sapling, which can be planted in a fruit tree patch. Most fruit trees take several hours to mature once planted in the patch. Once a fruit tree is fully grown the player may check its health and harvest it to receive 6 fruit. A fruit tree will continue to grow fruit over time, unless it is cut down and its stump dug up, with a new fruit regenerating every 45 minutes. Lower-levelled fruit trees (Apple trees to palm trees) take 16 hours (6 phases of 160 minutes each) to grow. The higher-levelled fruit trees (Ciku, Guarana, and Carambola) take about 13.5 hours (5 phases of 160 minutes each), one phase less.
